4.31/5 rDev 0%
A: Pours a clear dark orange, frothy off-white head that lingers a bit.
S: Citrus orange notes with a good bit of grassy/piney tones. A bit light as compared to others of this variety.
T: Pine resin is the clear forward flavor, but lends to some citrusy notes with a touch of caramel. Brings a nice balance to the flavor of this beer, much different than what I was expecting.
M: Nice body, moderately carbonated. Hops do a nice job of hiding the alcohol.
O: Very solid brew, well-balanced and much more complex than the Ruination. Personally I still prefer Enjoy By but this is still a must try!

Less than a month old.
A - pours a clear orange with a short, ephemeral head. Light lace. Minimal bubbles.
S - orange, pine, over-ripened mango and a fairly robust caramel malt note for the style. The intensity is surprisingly not as intense as Enjoy By, Pliny and several others.
T - follows the aroma and adds a touch of dry pineapple.
M - medium body. Assertive, but smooth bitterness with a spicy quality that lingers for a while, but doesn't ruin your day.
O - I like it quite a bit better than Ruination, but not as much as Enjoy By. Still a very good DIPA with a smooth, high ABV.

Pours from cask a great bright orange. Supersaturated and cloudy, can't see through this ipa at all. Off white frothy one finger head that stays.
Smells of fresh orange zest with some mango and grapefruit. Grassy slightly piny hop notes.
Tastes of some great malty sweetness up front. Warming alcohol and fruity esters. Tons of mango, orange, and grapefruit. Bitterness is quite mild at first but comes through towards the end. There's that grassy, pine hop bite but it blends well with the resinous, sticky quality of this beer. I can't say its perfectly balanced but that's a good thing for this beer. It stands out to me mostly because of the diverse flavors throughout the taste. I was wondering why it had the amount of alcohol notes coming through and realized this is almost an 11% beer.
Mouthfeel is very creamy, sticky, and round. This on cask makes it feel like a beer worth savoring.
Overall, it's a fantastic ipa that's very different from all others in its class. Refreshing, diverse, and interesting. This could be one of the best beers I've had if it weren't for the amount of alcohol notes. But, it's still up there.

This is a quality brew! to me this beer is less bitter then the original yet has a larger hop blast. The brew is very drinkable even at the high ABV. The aroma was hoppy and the carbonation was crisp. If you like Ruination you will really enjoy this one. A quality brew from a quality brewer.
Bottom Line: Palate wrecking hop blast!
